in the first debate is it elevated mitt romney and the country saw them as, you know, almost equals. i think what's going on here is kind of underlines the idea that we had one president. he's focused on his job. it does have some risk with it. he will be responsible and have to take sfont for fema and all the work they do. i think the biggest advantage, though, is these are times, you know, people are skeptical of government. people are always talking about cutting the size of government and spending, but these are times that people understand the real value of government, the federal government in coordinating and funding these efforts. the republicans have a problem here because they argue constantly. mitt romney said we should privatize fema or at least get rid of it and put it back to the states. that's a terrible argument to be defending this week. >> that was something brought up during the primary debates. joe, the former president is going to campaign for president obama later today in youngstown, ohio. the latest cnnle poll gives the president a four-point lead over governor romney
-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country. listen to mrs. romney. >> what's happening in greece and look what's happening around the world, we look at what's happening. this is a frightening worlgd. we need a grownup and someone to understand the economy. so i'm glad mitt can be this gronup to all. >> ha, ha, ha. with all the president has done across the world from bin laden? he's not a grown-up? the implications are offensive when you see them in debates acting all cordial to the president. >> it's a little more. ann romney isn't running by president but romney by extension believes the president isn't a grown-up by comparing him to one of his sons during the presidential debate. this is insensitive, given the 2008 was historical election, first african-american president, not just disparaging to the man barack obama but disparaging to the office. shame on her. what david was saying earlier when we were talking about mitt romney wanting to turn back the clock. he sounds like the robert be behrens believes hard work is only by the fat cat on wall street. he's not talk
the future for our kids and our country. i am -- i know i'd have come to see that mitt romney is the right candidate for us for president. he is the man with a record. there you go. he is. mitt romney is the man with a record, the experience, and the character to begin to turn things around, to change things in washington, to break the gridlock and to make the changes we need to get our country back on track. we all need to do everything that we can to be sure that he is elected as the next president of the united states and what i like to think today is we have five more days to avoid four more years. it is great to be here with all of you. great to feel this energy in ohio. it will be close but we're headed in the right direction. it is my pleasure to introduce a wonderful friend of mine and that is barbara nicholas, our special guest. you all know barbara. she went to high school year and went to ohio state here. she and jack have been married for 52 years. they started their family here. they are real treasures throughout ohio and all across the united states. special people, barbara i
against them. in 2012 there's a much different feeling across the country. if you look at the crowds that romney and ryan were able to gather this past weekend, actually republicans believe they can win this time. i think it will probably be a little bit closer than that, romney wins by a when i say kerr, but some of the states that were strong obama like minnesota that are now in the lean obama column, and they have to send bill clinton out today to minnesota to try to help. >help. >> sean: i'm here to save my buddy, barack obama. >> the headlines coming out of that were so bad, i wouldn't have sent him in the first place. >> sean: here's the deal. they gotta send joe biden to pennsylvania because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't
to leave here and fan out over the country in support of mitt romney. i will be in wisconsin tomorrow. florida the next day. maybe pennsylvania. they are going to probably decide that as we move along. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country probably mostly in the swing states. >> greta: is there any way to when he sure, ohio tonight? i know that everyone on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if
'd still say this is the test -- it's on obama's racket. i'm struck by the way in which romney as he presents himself to the country is different from the way that he was demonized early in this campaign by the obama advertising. people see him in the debates, it turns out that he's a likable guy. and chris: i agree with that. >> and sounding moderate, cheerful and optimistic and positive. that's a very different -- >> and for a reversal -- chris: they weren't ready for jekyll. they were selling hyde. >> my gut tells me no, partly baurgs the economic message has moved away from him in the accepts that using greece and some of these countries as a scare tactic to say this is why we need to force government spending cuts and people are reassessing that and realize the damage that it does become, even on wall street becoming more skeptical of what a romney president would mean for growth and the federal reserve. chris: katty. >> i think if you -- if it comes down to ohio, and my hunch is that obama, look at joe's poll, obama is still looking fairly strong in ohio. i guess if you had to
throughout the country on behalf of mitt romney, we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour the damage with you? (laughter) >> jon: are you kidding me, doocy? (laughter) look at christie. >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics then you don't know me. (cheers and applause). >> jon: if i know my state and my governor, i believe that is the point of the conversation where you are supposed to flip over a table and yell "pro * "prostitution whore!" (laughter) you know, on a personal note i live in downtown manhattan -- (laughter). -- and as the water begoon rise i knew that my family counted on me in this time of unprecedented trouble and laug.

we should be going 70. people though the rest of the world is not right. the first abate mitt romney proved he can meet -- lead the country. lou: arguably he will change the history with that performance. what can be done by present romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number o data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemoyed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove
. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the he said he's deeply disappointed but will not be deterred. >> it will not discourage us. the people of syria deserve our support and our interest. >> russian forn says he supports a plan to sd inspectors back to syria. they're considering expanding the team of observers. the previous team left in august after a cease-fire at that time failed. the new york times reported last thursday that the family accrued assets worth about $2.7 billion. the newspaper says the wealth includes shares of major insurance firms.
like from the-ryan compan -- romney-ryan country. this is how i look at it. six more days to avoid four more years. you agree with me? i will go along with that. we need him now. it is the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. the momentum is our way and you can see from this crash -- this crowd. are we going to take mitt over the goal line? of course we are. we will leave from on the field. those of you who were at football practice in your younger days. remember that? you have to leave it on the field. these next six days will determine who the next leader of the free world is. the state of ohio could determine who the next president is going to be. everything you're going to do can make a difference in terms of determining the direction of our country. that is a pretty heavy responsibility. it is a great opportunity as a highlands -- ohioans. we have the chance to make a difference for our kids and grandkids, for our communities and our country. as i am talking to people around the state i keep hearing the same thing. you're not happy with the status quo and we h
morning. knowing that we got our country back on the right track. knowing that wisconsin delivered its ten electoral votes to put america back on the right foot by elect mitt romney as president of the united states. >> greta: it comes down to the great state of wisconsin. that where paul ryan rallying his hometown supporters. chairman previs joins us, are you tired? >> this is rendezvous with destiny. this is time for choosing. this is what it is coming down to. are you tired? people ask me that and did trick-or-treat weigh the kids tonight. this is what we're here for to do this job, to do this mission. when i see out on the campaign trail that volunteers are based the people that are really working hard. they are so charged up. they are charged up to do what they can to save this country and they are hungry. you can feel that. >> greta: polls say they are tied, 46-46. that means it's 92, who are the other 8%? >> we're looking for them. if you look at early vote and absentee ballot vote. we are overperforming by far. the democrats are underperforming in ways you don't hear them talking a
intelligent would risk this country with romney. and also, quote, lou resaid that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. then he mellows and said, well, most of them were -- not all, most. now hesaid, he is back to where he was. then, the mayor was at the event and said he was shocked and the mayor added that there was talk about putting video of the event on tv, but ultimately decided it wouldn't be a good idea. we reached out to the reverend and asked him to clarify his remarks. he did speak with the daily caller and told them his comment about white people going straight to hell was a joke. joining me with reaction from the new york civil rights coalition, motorcyclal miers and david webb. i'm torn. i hear the comments and i'm like, wow. when i went to atlanta and i was a local host. i knew hosea williams and maynard jackson, welcomed me my first day. andrew young, joseph lowrie -- these are guys that put their lives on the line. nothing but respect. i am shocked, honestly. i said on my radio -- you were excoriating me because i said i would give hi
is mitt romney. there is not much time and the future of our country is at stake. >> sean: you know the thing that really grabbed me about that? you know, you don't have to do this, you are clint eastwood. you really feel -- i kind of feel the same way, so i think i am identifying with you. but i sensed, you really feel that the country we grew up in, the land of opportunity -- is in jeopardy. am i reading you right -- the reason you got involved in you didn't have to get involved in it. >> you are absolutely right. i just felt, one day, i tell you, i know some people who -- we sit around and complain, but we never, ever step up and do anything. and i have to give -- jon voight a pat on the back because i was sitting with him and a couple of other people, commiserating about the situation with the economy and everything. he said, well, why doesn't anybody in hollywood ever speak up? i thought, yeah, you know, he's right. we are kind of chicken. we are sitting around, you know, kind of going, let somebody else do it. so all of a sudden, one day, they asked me to be on the rnc and go
, and most of all sticks to the message. barack obama had his chance. it is time for mitt romney to fix the economy. that has been the message in manassas. >> these are critical times in this country and so you have a choice. america is going to have a choice. he city cannot fix washington from the inside. we will give him that chance. will have 40 straight months of unemployment above 8%. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> paul ryan has also made frequent visits to virginia. >> do we want to stay on the path that president obama has placed a son? i take it as a no. >> ryan brought the message back to jobs. >> he said this would create jobs and prevent unemployment from getting about 8%. >> another circuit has been his wife ann. he hasshe insists women also need to focus on the economy. >> as we now this economy has had women harder than men. it has been much tougher on them. >> virginia has been the selected site for other major romney messages. he chose emi for his foreign policy address. >> i know the president hope for a safer and prosperous middle east
the campaign trail. he's got to go run the country. that leaves mitt romney in a kind of odd position at that point, too, because he can't look like he's just campaigning. >> schieffer: what does he do, join the national guard? ( laughter ). >> he doesn't want to look like he's faking it and getting in the president's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how bi
to other countries. >> oh yes and romney's direct approach with the allies was so much wrong. >> another flare up. >> our navy is smaller now than anytime since 1917. the navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. we are now down to 285 headed to the low 200s if we go through a sequestration. that is unacceptable to me. >> governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. we have these things aircraft carriers where planes land a little bit obama. >> 663 in the pentagon. >> they are all sharp too, the women. >> romney made a very good point. >> that is actually the wall street journal. >> reagan had a 600 ship navy. it is now down to fewer than 300. also the american people talking straight politics, you tell them we are going to build up our ships that is very positive with the american people in terms of defense. i think you ought to have a 300 ship navy because we are going to be bringing the troops home. >> first of all the president is right when he says you don't count ships you count the effectiveness of the navy and o
a chance to show what he would do in this occasion, and it gives us a chance to look at what mitt romney would do were he in charge of the country or in charge of fema. in politics, you cannot separate politics because it's convenient or unseemly. there is a bad storm coming, and there is a presidential election. you pay attention to how each of these people do it. it's almost a gift. >> cenk: now as you look at that to me when i'm looking at the actually, facts i'm stunned that these guys are at a 50-50 point. one of the polls take an one-point lead, but they're just neck and neck in all the polls on the national level. i mean, are the democrats in some ways too timid in taking--in saying, hey minute, these guys will cut the living hell out of fema. he said to privatize it. >> it was house republicans who stood in the way of extended more funds to fema. they said without cuts we're not going to extend more funds to fema. then through see questions trace, another $800 million is going to come out of fema's budget. that's bad. >> cenk: one last question question{^l"^^}. if anything goes w
romney is by the side of her husband as he takes on a fight to get our country back on its feet and walking confidently into the future. i like to think we have a lot in common. they have five children. jack and i have have five children. we did sneak in a girl among our four boys and an and mitt have four boys but i will tell her there is a place in heaven for the mother of five boys. we have 22 grandchildren, ann and mitt have 18 but they'll probably catch us and pass us. and when i mention our children and grandchildren, the reality and importance of this election come alive. the election is not about us. it's about our children and grandchildren. [applause] jax and i have always said that children are the root of a heart. so as a parent, all we ever want to create is a better future for our children. we don't want to have to tell our tcharniester year was a better life than theirs will be tomorrow. ann and mitt understand this and know what it will take to get our country the greatest nation on earth back on the right track. this election provides us an opportunity to review
. president obama and mitt romney crisscrossing the country in a blur of nonstop events. we have two reports, nbc's peter alexander is in new hampshire today with mitt romney and nbc white house correspondent kristen welker is in house with president obama. we're going to start with the president, who is making four campaign stops in four different states. kristen welker is not campaigning. but she's making those four stops in four states, she is in mentor, ohio. kristen, good morning to you on this busy day. the president showing the importance of that state by coming back again today? >> oh, absolutely, alex. good morning to you. look, it is no surprise that president obama is kicking off the weekend here in ohio. this is really the cornerstone of his midwest firewall. if mitt romney can't win ohio, it is nearly impossible for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were
some. they had intelligence on both sides. they misled the country. >> we are going to get into that next week where i a document i want to produce. >>> the obama romney exchange on syria. >> what we have done is organize the international community. saying assad has to go and we are helping the opposition organize it. but ultimately syrians are going to have to determine their own future. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria and our objectives are to replace assad and have in place a new government which is friendly to us and i want to make sure they get armed and they have arms necessary to defend themselves but also to remove assad. >> question. the candidates agreed assad must go. is seeing assad go the best outcome in syria? mort? >> yeah, without question. but he is not going to leave gently, going gently into the night. it is very easy to say we are going to leave it up to the syrian people but the syrian military and syrian forces after saddam have all the he weapons. it is a completely unbalance ad approach and therefore an ineffective way of poli
in colorado ohio romney told supporters president obama is not the man to lead the country for another four years years. >> you see he's reelected you're going to have the status quo. he calls it forward, i call it forewarned. >> romney is off to florida while ryan continues to campaign in ohio. >> it's always america is in decline, america is not in decline, you're in denial. >> reporter: as for the democrats, vice president joe biden hit the trail in ohio, president obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >>> and coming up in eight minutes we sit down with a group of northern california voters, what's on their minds as they pick a president and help shape the future of the nation. >>> more bad news tonight for hockey fans what we've learned about plans for a full nhl season. the giants in detroit later in sports what ryan vogelsan had to say about starting tomorrow in game three. >> i'm going to have the forecast for game three, i think you're going to be surprised on how cool the temperatures are going to be and of course we have the bay area weekend, see you back here in a few minutes,
